Dubai Tourist Information



You can catch two types of taxis outside the airport: standard cream-coloured ones and the luxury ones.
 Fares for the luxury taxis are about 30% more than the standard taxis. 
Some regular taxis allow payment by credit card, which will cost an extra AED 2 to your fare.
Dubai taxi information

It’s perfectly safe for women to ride alone in a taxi. However, if you prefer, you can also call to request a Ladies Taxi, which are recognisable by their pink roof and female drivers.

Public transportation

Dubai’s public transportation system includes buses, metros, water buses and abras (water taxis). A chip card called Nol Card (“nol” is Arabic for “fare”) can be purchased beforehand from a ticket office or vending machine located in all metro and bus stations, malls and airports.

 Tip: Go to the Al Qasr Hotel, take a boat (for free) to the restaurant; after dinner, order a buggy (for free but give a tip) and ask him to take you to Souk Medinat or Cove Beach; on the way, take a selfie in front of Burj Al Arab
